Evaluates how a child's subjective perceptions of a mentally ill parent's psychiatric symptoms and parenting skills relate to the child's psychological adjustment. In this study, 57 children and their mothers, half of whom were mothers with a severe and chronic mental illness, participated in a research protocol that included a directed observation of mother-child dyads and measures of parenting style, parent psychopathology, child behavior, and child's self-perceptions.
